Alter Eco is based on the premise that food is fundamental to life – and whole, healthy, delicious food can make life better for people all over the world. By working directly with the small-scale farmers who grow our quinoa, rice, sugar and cacao, helping them institute Fair Trade and
Organic practices and assisting them in improving both quality of food and quality of life, we’re creating a system that benefits everyone involved. Our values extend to the flora, fauna and fields – we work with our co-op partners to preserve heirloom grains, replenish and reforest the land. And as a GHG Protocol 3 Carbon Zero business, we offset more carbon than we emit.
In today’s culinary world of rare spices and specialty salts, Alter Eco Organic Mascobado Cane Sugar offers an exceptional kind of sweetness. This traditional unrefined sugar retains the essence of the Islang Asukal it came from, with rich flavors that range from delicate caramel and vanilla to malty molasses and marshmallow. And because its untouched by modern refining processes, each grain possesses all the nutrients of the Philippines’ raw native sugar cane.
Products from Alter Ego include: Quinoa, Rice, Sugar, Chocolate and Truffles
